Franc Plates - Set of 4

Franc Plates - Set of 4


Typically thought of as tip plates to leave a few centimes for the waiter, franc plates were actually used in France during the early 20th century as coasters that doubled as a bar tab. For example, if you ordered a glass of wine that cost three francs, it would be brought with the 3 franc coaster. If another drink was consumed, it would again be brought with the coaster indicating its price. When it was time to settle the bill, the stack of coasters with their varying prices would be added up and voila, that was your total!

Reproduced from antique originals, these franc plates are full of colorful French charm. Perfect for serving small hors d'oeuvres at an intimate dinner party, the plates also make wonderful nut, soap or trinket dishes, as well as being the perfect coaster. With their easy nature, these delightful Franc Plates are sure to serve you well with their oh-so-French fashion.

5" diameter.  Numbers and designs vary, please allow us to choose a wonderful selection for you.
